Tracking the 30 Pre-Draft Prospect Visits for the Eagles 2020 Draft

Updated: Apr 25, 2020

Before the NFL draft on April 23rd, all 32 teams have the ability to bring in 30 different players of their choice for in-person meetings. Here they can work the player out, interview him, and get a better understanding of them. Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus crisis, teams are no longer able to conduct in-person meetings, but they still can talk to prospects over the phone or through video apps. Want to keep track of the players the Eagles have brought in to the NovaCare Complex or talked to over the phone? Stay here, and we will continue to update throughout March and April.

Amik Robertson | CB | LA Tech | 5'9, 183 lbs | Jr. (Source)

Even though he did not work out at the Combine, Robertson garnered interest from NFL teams and is expected to be fully recovered from his sports hernia surgery in time to participate in his Pro Day, which means he will be fully healthy for OTAs. Robertson is an undersized guy at 5'9 183lbs, but is a ball hawk. He has 14 career interceptions, returning three of those to the house. He also has 36 pass defenses; 16 alone in 2019, tied for the most in the NCAA. The easy projection here would be the Honey Badger, Tyrann Mathieu - whom he likened his style to.


Current Projection: 3rd-5th Round


Darnay Holmes | CB | UCLA | 5'10, 198 lbs | Jr. (Source)

Holmes was an honorable mention all-conference selection by Pac-12 coaches for his play in 2019. In 35 career games as a Bruin, he put together 121 tackles (3.0 for loss), eight interceptions (two pick-sixes), 28 passes defended, two forced fumbles, and two fumble recoveries; he also added 878 kick return yards and took one kick return to the house. A solid tackler that doubles as a dynamic special teamer sounds like a dream player for the Birds. However, he does have trouble in the redzone and on double moves which might make him a little less desirable. He can play both outside corner and nickel, but he would likely excel in the slot in the pros.


Current Projection: 4th-6th Round


Davion Taylor | LB | Colorado | 6'0, 225 lbs | Sr. (Source)

Taylor is one of the rawest prospects in the 2020 draft. He didn't play football at all until he joined JUCO. So basically that means he has all the athleticism needed, but still needs to work on his football IQ and awareness. in 24 games with Colorado, Taylor racked up 129 tackles (18.0 for loss), 2.0 sacks, six passes defended, three fumble recoveries, and one fumble return touchdown. Drafting him would likely have risks involved since he is a raw talent, but the reward might be crucial for an Eagles team with very little linebacker help.


Current Projection: 4th-6th Round

Logan Wilson | LB | Wyoming | 6'2, 250 lbs | Sr. (Source)

In 52 career games at Wyoming, Wilson registered 421 tackles (35.0 for loss), 7.0 sacks, 10 interceptions (two pick-sixes), 24 passes defended, four forced fumbles, and four fumble recoveries (two taken for touchdowns). What he lacks in athleticism he gains with his situational awareness and overall football IQ; he can smell a play out as soon as an offense lines up.


Current Projection: 5th-7th Round


Terrell Lewis | DE | Alabama | 6'5, 252 lbs | Jr. (Source)

Lewis only played 26 collegiate games, but he was a constant presence on the stat sheet. He put together 58 tackles (14.5 for loss), 8.0 sacks, three passes defended, and one forced fumble. At the next level, Lewis will be able to become an effective pass rusher with his skill set. The Eagles love to have a reliable rotation at the defensive end position to keep their pass rushers fresh. It wouldn't be surprising if Howie Roseman invests a high pick to bolster his defensive line.


Current Projection: 2nd-3rd Round


James Lynch | DT | Baylor | 6'4, 295 lbs | Jr. (Source)

Lynch's 22.0 sacks are the most in Baylor's history, which is astonishing to think about given that he is an interior pass rusher. To go with all of those sacks, he also registered 101 tackles (33.5 for loss), seven passes defended, three forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries, and three blocked kicks in just 38 games. Even though he put up great numbers in college, draft analysts don't really see a ton to get excited about when watching his film. The hope would be that his pass rush abilities stick with him at the next level, as the Eagles would love to add an interior pass rusher to their defensive line and pair with Fletcher Cox.


Current Projection: 3rd-4th Round

Josiah Deguara | TE | Cincinnati | 6'3, 240 lbs | Sr. (Source)

Deguara gives off vibes that are similar to former Bearcat/Eagle Brent Celek. He is known for his competitiveness and hard-nosed style of ball that will do anything that is best for the team. In 46 games at Cincinnati, he recorded 92 receptions for 1,117 yards and 12 receiving touchdowns (and one rushing touchdown). The Eagles need to find a reliable third-string tight end in case Zach Ertz and/or Dallas Goedert go down with injuries in 2020. His acceptable blocking and pass-catching abilities make him a very intriguing target late in this year's draft.


Current Projection: 6th-7th Round


Jalen Reagor | WR | TCU | 5'11, 194 lbs | Jr. (Source)

After doing an extensive draft profile on him, our writer Mike Weiss believes that Reagor will be the best wide receiver available for the Eagles at 21 overall (if CeeDee Lamb and Henry Ruggs are both already taken). In just 39 collegiate games, Reagor put up 148 receptions for 2,248 yards and 22 receiving touchdowns (along with two rushing scores). If the Eagles do select him, Reagor would be following in his father Montae's footsteps, as the elder Reagor played one season for the Birds in 2007, recording one sack and two tackles in just seven games. The younger Reagor will undoubtedly be the better one from the family tree if he ends up in Philadelphia, as he would become one of Carson Wentz's favorite receivers.


Current Projection: Late 1st - Early 2nd Round


Jeremy Chinn | S | Southern Illinois | 6'3, 212 lbs | Sr. (Source)

The Eagles need to find a young safety to groom sooner rather than later, and they might have one fall into their laps in Jeremy Chinn. He is an elite coverage defender and has excellent ball skills. In 38 collegiate games, Chinn registered 243 tackles (5.5 for loss), one sack, 13 interceptions, 31 passes defended, six forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries, and one blocked kick.


Current Projection: Early - Mid 2nd Round

Marshe Terry | S | Northern Illinois | 6'3, 212 lbs | Sr. (Source)

Terry has experience playing safety, linebacker, and cornerback at the collegiate level. After three years at UCONN, he transferred to Northern Illinois to strictly play safety to help his chances of getting playing time and potentially get drafted. In 32 total games at the two schools, Terry collected 134 tackles (5.5 for loss), three passes defended, one forced fumble, and three fumble recoveries. He'll likely be a wild card, especially with teams not getting to see him work out at his Pro Day or interview him in person. If he goes undrafted the Eagles should sign him for camp to see what he brings to the table since he could be a hybrid athlete.


Current Projection: 7th Round/UDFA
